This little book light clips onto books with ease, but you can also place the light on the table, chair, or other surface, and move the arm into position over your book. The light features three LEDs (with a life-time guarantee); and you can use 3 AAA batteries or the AC adapter to power the unit. You can also collapse the light for extreme portability (carry it anywhere; and it appears to be very durable!) You could even use it as a little desk lamp, which you can take with you to your various study/reading spots. I've been very impressed by this light, and I highly recommend it.
